good point, but you might have to unmount the floppy through exec.php 
first and remount the new one - never tried switching floppies on my 
m0n0 while running, I just know it*is* mounted during operations:

m0n0wall: execute command

$ mount
/dev/md0c on / (ufs, local)
procfs on /proc (procfs, local)
/dev/fd0 on /cf (msdos, local, read-only)

 Just in case, make a backup through the proposed solutions first, just 
in case :)
